Teams scour icy Pennsauken Creek for teen's bodyPosted: Updated:
Dive teams were back at Pennsauken Creek Tuesday, searching for the body of a teenage mother after police said a relative and another man confessed to the killing.
Felicia Mikel's great-grandmother reported the 17-year-old missing Saturday. One day later, the teen's 5-week-old baby was found abandoned near a Cherry Hill home.
New Jersey State Police said Mikel's uncle directed them to the icy creek, where they found a stroller that may have belonged to the victim. According to authorities, Christopher Mikel and his friend, Douglas Mandichak, confessed to killing the teen over money.
"That dispute apparently was going on for a number of weeks," said Sgt. Stephen Jones. "There's indications that they had been talking about doing something ? violent to her."
Relatives have custody of the victim's baby. Police are conducting DNA tests to determine who the father is, and they said they have not ruled out either suspect.
